A live recording of our educational podcast The Sounds The Stories with EMÆL. EMÆL is an eclectic quintet that has converged many genres of music ranging from their classical roots to indie/alt-pop influences.

Multi-instrumentalist frontman Emmanuel Ventura-Cruess assembled the band from his most talented friends in 2014. EMÆL has spent the last two years developing their debut album “Glasswork”, working with Grammy nominated producer/mixer Itai Shapira.
